What's new in the schedule for fall 2011

New fields of study: Effective fall 2011 Computational Science, Engineering, and Mathematics (CSE) will replace Computational and Applied Mathematics (CAM). CSE will be administered by the Office of Graduate Studies.

Business, Government, and Society (BGS) will be administered by the McCombs School of Business.

Updates to class listings. When academic units update their class meeting information, the new information is available to students instantly on their class listing page as well as in this Course Schedule. Students are expected to double-check their classes prior to the first class meeting.

Electronic billing of tuition and fees. Since the spring 2006 semester, all tuition and fees have been electronically billed. Students no longer receive a paper bill in the mail. It is the students’ responsibility to make certain that their tuition and fees are paid by the deadlines listed in this Course Schedule. Only students who register early receive a notification that their fee bills are ready to be paid, however all students may view their bills at My Tuition Bill.

Official e-mail policy. Electronic mail, or e-mail, is a mechanism for official University communication to students. The University will exercise the right to send e-mail communication to all students, and the University will expect that e-mail communication will be received and read in a timely manner. The complete e-mail policy is available online.

Using the schedule.

The online course schedule provides general information about the university, such as registration procedures, fees and deposits, academic advising requirements, a list of classes containing a significant writing component, an index of final examination times, and grade reporting procedures. Read about these by pressing the links in the navigation bar along the side of any page in the schedule.

The schedule also lets you search for courses. A search will display class listings like the one below. Each class listing has a number of parts.

Most of the Course Schedule is devoted to class listings and associated information. In general, fields of study are arranged alphabetically by college and, within those divisions, alphabetically by department/academic program. Each academic area has a headnote that lists the administrative officers for the area, along with their office addresses and phone numbers. In many cases, important information about course prerequisites, descriptions, and enrollment restrictions is given in the headnote.

Course detail art

Course numbers.
These start with a field of study made up of one to three letters, and end with a three-digit number. Summer courses have a lowercase letter just before the number: f for first term, n for nine weeks, w for whole session, and s for second term. Note: Within a department, courses alphabetize by field, then sort by their last two digits. (So ACC 353J comes before ACC 179C.) In summer, s courses sort after f, n, and w courses.
Course titles.
Titles appear just after course numbers, and apply to all sections below them until a new course appears. For each course number, titles sort alphabetically. Those with topic numbers sort numerically.
Notelines.
On detail pages, notes may appear after a course title. These include course descriptions, prerequisites, enrollment and other restrictions, and cross-listed courses, and apply to all sections of the course.
Unique number.
A five-digit number which identifies a particular section of a course. (You'll need this number to register.) On results pages, pressing a unique number opens a page with class details.
Meeting times.
This appears next to a unique number. Weekdays are listed by their initial letters: MWF means a class meets Mon, Wed, and Fri all semester. (If it meets on additional days, on certain dates, or for only part of a semester, this will be noted on the details page.) Class hours follow the weekday. » Also see meeting time in the glossary.
Rooms.
The building and room come next. Buildings are abbreviated with three letters. » Also see the list of buildings and their abbreviations.
Instructor.
When assigned, instructor information follows the room.
Status.
The real-time registration status of a course section displays online, and includes classes which are open, restricted to specific majors or students, closed, waitlisted, or canceled.

Registration

Each semester, current students register for classes for the next semester.

There are three parts to the registration process at the university: academic advising with a faculty or staff member, registering for classes online, and paying a tuition and fee bill.

Registering for classes

You've done your homework. Now go grab some classes.

Don't use software to grab classes. The university will not allow you to use vendor software or other automated programs to register, or to add and drop. If you do, you may be blocked from registering.

And get your UT student ID at the ID Center in FAC 102 Mon thru Fri from 830a to 5p. (Bring a photo ID, like a driver's license or passport.) The cost of the card is $10. Payment is due within one month and can made at the cashiers in Main 8 or online at What I Owe. Continuing students do not have to go to the ID center each semester. The card's magnetic strip is validated when the semester’s tuition is paid.

When to register and pay for fall 2011.

Here are timelines for the registration process, which includes adding and dropping classes, joining waitlists, and paying your bill.

Find access times by checking the dates below, or see your registration information sheet for your exact times.

Once your first access time ends, you can register in later periods -- but to get the best classes, use your earliest time. If you wait, you might not finish before school starts, and will pay a fee. Remember that you have to clear all bars to register, and that your registration is not complete until you've paid your bill. If you do not pay your bill by the deadline you will be dropped from your courses.

Pay at My Tuition Bill, or in ways described in payment procedures.

The university prohibits the use of automated systems to add, drop, or register. You will be barred from online registration if you violate the University Acceptable Use Policy for computer resources.

Payment must be received by 5p on the payment deadline. Tuition bills will not be distributed. If you do not pay your tuition bill, you will not be registered.

Review your methods of payment and our payment plans. Remember – the final step in the registration process is making sure your registration is complete and your courses are secure; if you don’t complete your registration by the deadline it will be cancelled and you’ll lose all of your classes.

Payment plans

Full Payment Plan. Full payment or confirmation of attendance must be received no later than the payment deadline in the registration sequence table or as instructed at the time of registration.

Three-payment installment plan. Tuition and required fees may be paid in three installments. The first installment consists of one-half of the tuition, a nonrefundable $15 service charge, and the full amount of fees that cannot be paid on the installment plan, such as optional fees, general property deposit, late registration fee, and international student health insurance fee. The first installment is due by the deadline specified in the registration sequence table or as instructed at the time of registration. No late initial installment payments will be accepted; failure to pay the first installment by the due date will result in cancellation of registration. The installment plan is not available to students who register after the twelfth class day.

Students must sign a promissory note before the first installment plan payment will be accepted. To sign the note, go to My Tuition Bill - Promissory Note. Students who do not have an upgraded UT EID may sign a paper note at the cashiers in MAI 8.

The second and third installments each consist of one-half of the remaining balance, adjusted for adds and drops. Bills for these payments are sent to the student's e-mail address. Paper bills are not mailed. These installments are due 23 Sep and 21 Oct, whether or not the student receives the bill.

Selection of the three-payment installment plan constitutes an agreement to pay the remaining tuition and fees on time. A $25 late charge is assessed for second and third installment payments received after the due date. If you select the installment plan and subsequently receive a financial aid award, your total tuition and fees will be deducted from your award at the time of disbursement.

To check for receipt of a tuition payment, go to Official Receipt.

Direct questions about tuition bills to Tuition Billing, MAI 4, (512) 475-7777 (option 1). E-mail inquiries may be sent to fbic@austin.utexas.edu.

Methods of payment

Electronic Bank Payment. There are two options available for paying online directly from your bank account. To select either option, go to My Tuition Bill online. Electronic payments that are returned to the University, regardless of the reason, will be treated the same as returned checks. Tuition and financial bars cannot be paid by electronic funds if you have a "no personal check" restriction with Student Accounts Receivable.

  • eCheck. You may pay online just as though you were using a traditional paper check. No authorization form is required. This option does not require an upgraded EID and can be used by anyone acting as an eProxy.
  • Electronic Funds Transfer. You may pay by direct transfer of funds from your bank using a pre-established account if you have completed an Electronic Funds Transfer Authorization form. Authorizations may be completed online.

Credit Card. Go to My Tuition Bill online to charge the total amount due to your MasterCard, Discover, or American Express card.

If payment is approved, the registration system will give you an authorization code confirming the transaction. A convenience charge will be added to all tuition and mandatory fee payments made by credit card.

Check or money order. All checks must be drawn on US banks in US dollars. Collection charges resulting from checks drawn otherwise will be charged to the student.

Checks may be presented to the cashiers in MAI 8 or, for early registration only, may be mailed. Your payment must be received by the payment deadline or your registration will be canceled. Make checks payable to The University of Texas at Austin and include your UT EID on your check. Send multiple checks together to ensure proper account posting.

If mailing checks by US Postal Service, including Express Mail), send to
The University of Texas at Austin
Student Accts Receivable
PO Box 7398
Austin TX 78713-7398

If sending checks overnight, including FedEx and UPS, mail to
The University of Texas at Austin
Student Accts Receivable
Main Bldg, Room 4
24th and Guadalupe Streets
Austin TX 78714

If your check is returned to the University, your registration will be incomplete. If payment is not received within ten calendar days of the returned check notice, you will not be registered for classes.

Cash. Do not mail cash payments. Cash payments must be presented to the cashiers in MAI 8 before 5p on the payment deadline.

Tuition loan. You may apply for tuition loans online. An upgraded EID and password are required to create the promissory note and electronically "sign." Students who have not upgraded their UT EIDs may apply for a loan and then go to the cashiers in MAI 8 by 4:30p the same day or the next business day (but by 5:00p on the payment deadline) to sign a promissory note and complete registration. You will be required to present a photo ID. Questions concerning tuition loans should be directed to Student Accounts Receivable, (512) 475-7779 (option 2).

Zero bill. If your tuition is zero, you must still confirm your attendance before the payment deadline. If a third party, such as the Texas Guaranteed Tuition Plan or a grant or scholarship, pays your tuition bill, you must confirm attendance before the payment deadline. You may do this via My Tuition Bill online. For additional information contact Student Accounts Receivable at (512) 475-7777, (option 1). If you do not plan to attend classes, do not confirm and we will cancel your registration; Student Accounts Receivable will not bill the agency, scholarship, or account for the fees. If you have confirmed and then choose not to attend, you must follow normal withdrawal procedures.

Financial aid. If you are eligible to charge your tuition bill to your financial aid, you may request this charge via My Tuition Bill by the payment deadline.
Questions about eligibility should be directed to the University of Texas at Austin, Office of Student Financial Services, General Accounting Section, 100 W Dean Keeton St, Austin TX 78705, (512) 475-6282.
If you are eligible for financial aid and choose to have registration charges paid directly from your financial aid account by the payment deadline, you will be tentatively registered. If, for any reason, the expected financial aid is not available to pay the registration fees by the twelfth class day, you must make other arrangements to pay fees by that date.

The final examination date and time for a class is determined by the class meeting time as listed in the above index. Final examinations for classes that meet at times not listed in the above index are normally scheduled with classes meeting at the indexed time that most closely corresponds to the beginning day and time of the class. For example, the exam for a class that meets T 3:00–6:00 PM will be at the same time as exams for classes that meet TTH 3:30–5:00 PM. If the beginning time of the class is halfway between two standard class beginning times, the class will be grouped with those meeting at the later time. For example, the exam for a class that meets MW 2:30–4:00 PM will be at the same time as exams for classes that meet MWF 3:00–4:00 PM.

Uniform examinations and their correspondent makeup exams are scheduled for certain courses that administer examinations at the same time for all students enrolled in the course. Generally, these examinations are given at times other than the regular examination time. A list of uniform and makeup examinations will be printed in the final examination schedule distributed prior to the end of the semester.

Questions about the final examination schedule should be directed to the Room Scheduling section of the Office of the Registrar at 475-7600.

Final examination policies.

In accordance with Policy Memorandum 3.201, class-related activities, with the exception of office hours, are prohibited on designated no-class days and during the final examination period. These dates are set aside for students to prepare for and take scheduled final examinations. During this period, papers and projects are not to be due, review sessions are not to be scheduled, quizzes are not to be given, and there are not to be any other class-related activities, with the exception of office hours.

The final examination days for the fall semester 2011 are Wednesday, December 7, through Saturday, December 10, and Monday, December 12, through Tuesday, December 13. The designated no-class days are Monday, December 5; Tuesday, December 6; and Sunday, December 11.

There is no University policy that provides relief to students who have three examinations scheduled the same day; in that situation, students may seek the assistance of the course instructor(s), department chair, and/or dean of the college.

The following final examination policies are taken from General Information, chapter 4:

Examinations should begin promptly at the scheduled hour and should not continue beyond the three hours allocated in the official schedule.

No final examinations may be given before the examination period begins, and no change in time from that printed in the official schedule is permitted without approval. An instructor with a compelling reason to change the time of an examination must obtain the approval of the department chair and the dean of the college or school in which the course is taught before announcing an alternative examination procedure to the students.

No substantial examinations may be given during the last class week or during the reading days and the no-class days preceding the final examination period. An examination is considered to be substantial if it counts for more than 30 percent of the final course grade.

A change in the room assignment for a final examination may be made only with the approval of the registrar.

With the approval of the department chair, an instructor may choose not to give a final examination. However, if an examination is given, all students must take it and no exemptions may be allowed except pursuant to a uniform exemption policy announced to the class.

For good cause, an instructor may give a student permission to take an examination with a different class section than the one in which the student is registered.

For good cause, a student may petition his or her academic dean for permission to change the time or place of an examination from that specified in the official schedule. If permission is given by the dean and the instructor, no penalty (such as a reduction in grade) may be assessed.

In a course extending over two semesters, when the subject matter is continuous, the second-semester final examination may include the subject matter of the first semester.

A student may address complaints related to the final examination procedures in a course to the chair of the department or the dean of the college or school in which the course is offered, or to the Office of the Ombudsperson.

Tuition, fees, charges, and deposits.

The following information is not intended to be comprehensive and is subject to change. Tuition, fees, and charges are subject to change by administrative, legislative, or regental action, and changes become effective on the date enacted. The following information should be used only as a guideline for estimating costs. For clarification of any matter relating to payment or refund of tuition, fees, charges, and deposits, contact the office or administrative unit from which the charge or refund originated, or consult the General Information catalog online.

A student must complete registration by the deadline by making a payment, paying with financial aid, or confirming attendance if the amount due is zero. Registrations that are not complete by the deadline will be canceled, and students will not have access to University services.

Flat rate tuition for undergraduate students

The flat rate tuition for each college covers the student’s academic program costs, including tuition, mandatory fees and charges, and college and course incidental fees. It does not include the general property deposit, the international student health insurance program fee, the international student orientation fee, the independent study and research fee, or fees for extended trips that require students to live off campus.

The flat rates are based on the average per-hour charges for tuition and fees previously paid by students in each college. Because fees previously varied, flat rate tuition varies by college. There is no restriction on the number of hours a full-time student may take when registered at the full-time rate, as long as the student complies with the quantity of work rule given in the General Information catalog.

Students who pursue simultaneous majors in more than one college are charged the higher of the two colleges’ rates.

Flat rate tuition for each college for fall 2011 and spring 2012 is available in PDF format on Student Accounts Receivable's Tuition and Fee Rates page under the Undergraduate Flat-Rate Tuition link. After selecting classes, the student may view his or her tuition and fee bill at the Student Accounts Receivable site.

Flat rate tuition for graduate, law, and professional students

Graduate, law, and professional students have been charged flat rate tuition since fall 2008. The flat rate tuition for each college covers the student's academic program costs, including tuition, mandatory fees and charges, and college and course incidental fees, and is indexed to the number of credit hours taken. It does not include the general property deposit, the international student health insurance program fee, the international student orientation fee, the independent study and research fee, or fees for extended trips that require students to live off campus.

Students enrolled in joint degree programs are charged a flat rate tuition that is proportional to the number of hours taken in each program.

Flat rate tuition for each college for fall 2011 and spring 2012 is available in PDF format on the Tuition and Fee Rates page under the Graduate and Professional Tuition link. After selecting classes, the student may view his or her tuition and fee bill at the Student Accounts Receivable site.

Nonresident tuition for resident students

Because the University is a state-assisted institution, tuition rates are lower for Texas-resident students than for nonresidents, including both out-of-state and international students. (Rules affecting residency are given in chapter 2 of the General Information catalog.) In the following circumstances, a student who is classified as a Texas resident may be charged nonresident tuition.

Undergraduates. State law allows colleges and universities to charge a Texas-resident undergraduate the nonresident tuition rate if the student has attempted an excessive number of hours beyond the number required for his or her degree. In addition, a higher tuition rate may be charged if a student enrolls again in a course he or she has completed. Information about charges for excessive undergraduate hours is published by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board at collegefortexans.com/getting/additionalcharges.cfm.

As of the academic year 2011-2012, the University does not charge undergraduates additional tuition for an excessive number of hours or for repeated courses.

Graduate students. A student who has earned more than ninety-nine semester hours of credit at the doctoral level is subject to the nonresident tuition rate, even if the student is a Texas resident or holds an appointment that would normally entitle the holder to pay resident tuition. This policy, sometimes called the Ninety-Nine Hour rule, is authorized by section 54.012 of the Texas Education Code. More information about charges for excessive graduate coursework is available from the Office of Graduate Studies at (512) 471-4511.

Tuition Exemptions

Tuition exemptions are issued only for the period in which a student is currently enrolled; therefore, unless otherwise stated, applications must be submitted no later than the date of Commencement at the end of the spring semester or the official graduation date at the end of the summer session or fall semester.

» Get a pdf of available exemptions

Tuition Waivers

A waiver allows for a portion of a student’s tuition not to be paid. The student is responsible for payment of the remaining tuition not covered by the waiver. Waivers are issued only for the period in which a student is currently enrolled; therefore, applications must be submitted no later than the date of Commencement at the end of the spring semester or the official graduation date at the end of the summer session or fall semester.

» Get a pdf of available waivers

Third-Party Billing

Agencies outside the University may set up third-party billing arrangements that pay all or part of a student’s tuition bill. The student is responsible for any amount not covered by the third party. Arrangements must be made in advance with the Special Billing Office, Main Building 4.

» Get a pdf of available third-party billing

Fee adjustments

Refunds are applied to any current and outstanding debts owed to the University. Section 54.006(d) of the Texas Education Code requires that the University refund tuition and fees paid by a sponsor, donor, or scholarship to the source, rather than directly to the student, if the funds were made available through the University. All refund orders are cashed at the Office of Accounting Cashiers in Main Bldg rm 8.

Refunds for students withdrawing from the University

Students who withdraw from the University receive a refund of a percentage of their tuition. The percentage varies according to the student’s effective withdrawal date:

Long session and summer session: whole-session classes.

official withdrawal date

percentage refunded

prior to the first class day

100 percent less $15 matriculation fee

during the first five class days

80 percent

during the second five class days

70 percent

during the third five class days

50 percent

during the fourth five class days

25 percent

after the fourth five class days

none

Summer session: first-term, second-term, and nine-week classes.

100 percent less $15 matriculation fee

during the first, second, or third class day

during the fourth, fifth, or sixth class day

50 percent

after the sixth class day

none

Withdrawal refunds are based on the student’s schedule on the effective date of withdrawal; adds and drops are included in the calculation. In some cases, a student may receive two refund checks, one based on dropped courses and one based on withdrawal percentages for remaining courses.

Students withdrawn by the University because of a returned check are assessed a $25 service charge and a matriculation fee. A student withdrawn by the University for scholastic reasons, class cancellations, or other reasons receives a full refund of fees paid that semester; the matriculation fee is not charged.

A student who withdraws as a result of being called to active military service may choose to receive a refund of tuition and fees.

A student who withdraws after receiving any cash payment from the Office of Student Financial Svcs may be required to make full or partial repayment. Funds received through the Federal College Work-Study Program are not subject to repayment. Students should contact the Office of Student Financial Services for information regarding repayment obligations.

Student Accounts Receivable initiates refunds for all eligible students who submit approved withdrawal petitions to the Office of the Registrar. A refund is issued no earlier than thirty days after the date the student paid the initial tuition and fee bill. The refund is sent to the address specified on the withdrawal petition.

Adjustments for added and dropped classes

Applicable charges for added classes must be paid by the end of the twelfth class day in the fall and spring semesters and by the end of the fourth class day in the summer. Nonpayment of tuition for added classes will result in the cancellation of the student's entire registration. Students can determine the amount owed by visiting the My Tuition Bill site.

Overpayments of tuition resulting from classes that a student drops (1) during the first twelve class days in a fall or spring semester; (2) during the first twelve class days of a whole-session class in the summer session; or (3) during the first four class days of a first-term, second-term, or nine-week class in the summer session will be refunded. No refunds are made for classes dropped after these dates. Refunds are issued the week after the twelfth (or fourth, in summer) class day. They are mailed to the student’s local address or deposited into the account the student has designated if an electronic funds transfer authorization is in effect. The student may contact Student Accounts Receivable at (512) 475-7777 to verify account information.

Optional fee refunds

Refunds of the Cactus yearbook fee should be requested at the Texas Student Media office. Parking permit refunds should be requested at the Parking and Transportation Svcs office. Longhorn All-Sports Package refunds should be requested at the Intercollegiate Athletics for Men office.

Tuition rebates for certain undergraduates

An undergraduate may be eligible for a tuition rebate of up to $1,000 if, at graduation, he or she has attempted no more than three semester hours beyond the minimum number of hours required for the degree. Eligibility requirements are given in the General Information catalog. Students apply for the tuition rebate at their dean’s office when they apply for graduation.

The University of Texas at Austin views sound academic advising as a significant responsibility in educating students. Academic advisers assist students in developing intellectual potential and exploring educational opportunities and life goals. Many people in the campus community contribute to the advising process, including faculty, staff, student, and professional advisers. Through the relationship established between adviser and student within a friendly, helpful, and professional atmosphere, a student has the opportunity to

  • learn about educational options, degree requirements, and academic policies and procedures;
  • clarify educational objectives;
  • plan and pursue programs consistent with abilities, interests, and life goals; and
  • use all resources of the University to best advantage.

Ultimately, the student is responsible for seeking adequate academic advice, for knowing and meeting degree requirements, and for enrolling in appropriate courses to ensure orderly and timely progress toward a degree. Frequent adviser contact provides students with current academic information and promotes progress toward educational goals. The University supports that progress and encourages effective academic advising campus-wide.

Academic advising during the registration process may or may not be required for every student in a given major. The following table indicates in the column “Advising Note” whether students are required to be advised. If advising is required, the student will have an advising bar that must be cleared by the major department online; until the bar is cleared, the student will not have access to the registration system. If advising is not required, it is optional and the student may report to the advising location listed below.

An undergraduate student with simultaneous majors should follow the advising procedures of both majors.

The major codes for students in special advising areas are six digits: the first four digits correspond to a specific major code, while the last two digits represent the special advising area. For example, 240919 is the major code for finance majors who are in the prelaw special advising area. The advising note for these students is R and the advising location is CBA 2.400.

Glossary of terms used in the schedule.

» to A thru E | F thru J | K thru O | P thru T | U thru Z

A thru E

Absence for military service.
In accordance with Texas education code section 51.9111, a student is excused from attending classes or engaging in other required activities, including exams, if he or she is called to active military service of a reasonably brief duration. The student will be allowed a reasonable time after the absence to complete assignments and take exams. Policies affecting students who withdraw from the University for military service are given in the General Information Catalog.
Access periods.
The designated time periods when specified groups of students may access the registration system. You may access the registration system as many times as necessary during your scheduled and open periods. Consult the access schedules printed in this Course Schedule or your online registration information sheet to determine when you are eligible. If you attempt to access the system at a time when you are not eligible, access will be denied. You are advised to access the system during the earliest period for which you are eligible. If your session is terminated before you complete your transactions, log back in to continue. All transactions completed prior to the termination are saved.
Add/drop.
Students who have enrolled and made payment toward their tuition and fee bill are considered to be "add/dropping" when they make changes to their schedule. The payment deadline for students participating in add/drops is different than the payment deadline for students who are continuing their initial registration.
Adding a class.
When you attempt to add a class to your schedule, the registration system checks certain conditions. If any of the conditions below prevent you from adding the class, and you do not receive the waitlist option, you will be told.
  • Requested unique number is invalid.
  • Requested class is canceled.
  • Requested class is filled to closing limit.
  • Requested class is restricted to certain majors or individuals.
  • Requested class creates a time conflict in your class schedule.
  • Requested class is a duplicate.
  • Requested class exceeds the registration limit for number of hours:
Maximum number of hours.

undergraduate

  • fall/spring 17
  • summer 14

graduate

  • fall/spring 15
  • summer 12

law

  • fall/spring 16
  • summer 14
  • Requested class exceeds the limit of fifteen classes.
  • If the requested class is an upper-division course in the College of Communication, you may not meet the upper-division GPA requirement.
  • If the requested class is RHE 306, you may be ineligible based on your month of birth. Only students with an even-numbered month of birth may register for RHE 306 in the fall; only students with an odd-numbered month of birth may register in the spring. There are no eligibility requirements based on month of birth in the summer session.
  • Student does not meet prerequisites for the requested class.
Advising bar.
A code placed on the record of a student who is required to consult an academic adviser. A student may not access the registration system until the advising bar is cleared on the computer by his or her major department. Also see advising and major codes or consult your registration information sheet to determine if advising is required for you.
Attendance.
Regular attendance at all class meetings is expected. Instructors are responsible for implementing attendance policies and must notify students of any special attendance requirements. Special regulations of colleges and schools, required by the unique nature of their programs of study, may be enacted through the normal approval process. These special regulations may not conflict with University regulations on class attendance and absence.
Cancellation of registration.
A student may cancel their unpaid registration by dropping all their classes prior to their first payment deadline. The University will drop all the student's classes if they do not make payment by the deadline. Once payment has been made, the student must withdraw if they do not wish to continue at the University. (Also see "Withdrawal.")
Classes added, canceled, or changed after the Course Schedule is printed.
You may select classes added after the Course Schedule is published when you use the search option in the registration system. Additional information about added courses is available from the academic departments offering them. If a class is canceled or the meeting time or room is changed after you have registered for it, that information will be reflected on your class listing page. It is your responsibility to double-check your class listing prior to the first class meeting.
Classification.
The designation freshman, sophomore, junior, senior, or graduate. Undergraduates are classified as freshman, sophomores, juniors, or seniors, based on the number of semester credit hours passed and transferred, regardless of the hours' applicability toward a degree. Semester hours used to determine classification include coursework completed in residence, transferred credit, and credit by examination, extension, and correspondence. Hours in progress and hours failed are not counted in determining classification.
Classification by semester credit hours.

freshman

0-29 hours of credit

sophomore

30-59 hours of credit

junior

60-89 hours of credit

senior

more than 89 hours of credit

A graduate student is one who has been accepted to the Graduate School, a graduate program in the Red McCombs School of Business, or the School of Law. Degree-holding but nondegree-seeking students are classified as a separate group for registration purposes in access period one.
Your classification is listed on your registration information sheet. Classification may change as a result of additional credit hours earned at the end of a semester or summer session. Use your updated classification to determine your access time.
Class meeting time and place.
The credit value of courses is expressed in semester credit hours. Most courses are designed to require approximately three hours of work a week throughout the semester for each semester hour of credit given; that is, for each hour a class meets, an average of two additional hours of preparation is expected of the student. The time requirement in the laboratory, field, or studio varies with the nature of the subject and the aims of a course, so there is no fixed ratio of laboratory to class hours.
Most courses meet three hours a week in the fall and spring semesters and have a value of three semester hours. In a six-week summer term, courses meet seven and a half hours a week for three semester hours of credit.
Also see meeting time for standard meeting times and interval between classes.
The time or meeting place of a class may not be changed without notifying the registrar in advance. A class may not meet in a facility that was not assigned to it.
Class rolls.
Faculty Members: If students (except auditors) whose names are not on your official class roster (twelfth class day for long-session semesters, fourth class day for summer terms) are attending your class, send them to the registrar's office to obtain official documentation of their registration. A student must be registered for a course to receive credit for it.
If a student is not on your class roster, they should not be allowed to attend until they are on the roster.
Errors in your class roster should be reported to the Office of the Registrar, 475-7656.
Class title.
The class title appears to the right of the course number and applies to all of the class sections listed below it until a new title is printed. In general, class titles are listed in alphabetical order for each course number except where preceded by a topic number.
Completing registration.
In order to secure classes selected during registration, a student must take action before the payment deadline to complete the registration process. The student must make a payment if there is an amount due; pay with financial aid if eligible; or confirm attendance if the entire tuition/fee bill is zero. Zero bills can occur when the entire bill is being paid by a grant or a third party such as the Texas Guaranteed Tuition Plan. Students take these actions at My Tuition Bill.
Continuing student.
A student who is enrolled for the previous long session at the University. A student who receives an undergraduate degree from the University and enters the Graduate School is considered a new student. (Also see "New student" and "Readmitted student.")
Course abbreviation.
Course abbreviations are listed with the names of the fields of study in the pull down menus on the search page. Within a department or program, courses are listed alphabetically by field of study.
Course number.
(also see Credit value and Letters) Courses with the same abbreviation are listed in numerical order by the last two digits of the course number and then alphabetically by any subsequent letters. For example, a course numbered 679K precedes one numbered 379L. In the summer session, course numbers are prefixed by a letter:
Summer session prefixes.

f

first term

n

nine-week term

w

whole session

s

second term

Summer session courses prefixed by f, n, and w are listed together in numerical order; courses prefixed by s are listed separately in numerical order following the f, n, and w courses.
Credit card transactions.
You may charge your tuition and fees to your credit card. A convenience charge is added to all housing, tuition and mandatory fee payments, or tuition loan payments, made by credit card. You may also use a credit card to clear most financial bars to gain access to the registration system. Because this process depends on agencies and technical systems other than those at the University, under some circumstances you may not be able to clear your bars by credit card and will therefore be denied access to the registration system. It is recommended that you clear financial bars before your scheduled access times by following the procedures outlined in registration and payment procedures.
Questions about credit card transactions should be directed to Student Accounts Receivable, (512) 475-7777.
Credit value.
Each field of study is identified by a name and a one-, two-, or three-letter abbreviation. Each course in the field is identified by a number made up of three digits or three digits and a letter. The first digit of a course number indicates the credit value of the course in semester hours. Courses numbered 201 through 299 have a value of two semester hours; 301 through 399, a value of three semester hours; and so on. A zero as the first digit indicates that the course is noncredit. If the course number ends with the letter A, B, X, Y, or Z, see letters below. A course with the single-word title Laboratory or Discussion is also noncredit, regardless of its course number; these sections are always taken concurrently with a credit-bearing lecture course.
Directory information.
The following policies are taken from General Information, Appendix C.
Sec. 9-201. Directory information
(a) “Directory information” for a student is defined as the following:
  • name
  • local and permanent addresses
  • electronic mail addresses
  • public username (UT EID)
  • telephone listing
  • date and place of birth
  • major field(s) of study
  • participation in officially recognized activities and sports
  • weight and height if a member of an athletic team
  • dates of attendance
  • enrollment status
  • degrees
  • awards and honors received (including selection criteria)
  • most recent previous educational institution attended
  • classification and expected date of graduation
  • student parking permit information
(b) Directory information is public information and will be made available to the public except as noted in subsection 9–201(c).
(c) A currently enrolled student may restrict access to all or some of their directory information or may remove all or some of their information from public directories through Restrict My Info during the first twelve class days of any semester or the first four class days of any summer term. A request to restrict information will remain in effect until revoked by the student.
eBilling.
Students who register early will receive an electronic billing notification for tuition and fees. No paper bills will be mailed. Students must keep their e-mail address current. Notices are sent to the e-mail address on the student record as verified at the time of registration. Electronic billing notifications are also sent for tuition and emergency cash loans.
eCheck.
An online payment that functions like a traditional paper check. It does not require an upgraded EID and can be used by anyone acting as an eProxy. Transactions that are returned to the University, regardless of reason, will be treated as returned checks.
Electronic funds transfer.
An electronic withdrawal of funds from your bank account using pre-established authorization. Account information is stored and can be used for money in (refunds, financial aid) or money out (payments). An upgraded EID is required. Transactions that are returned to the University, regardless of reason, will be treated as returned checks.
Statement on Equal Educational Opportunity.
The University of Texas at Austin is committed to an educational and working environment that provides equal opportunity to all members of the University community. In accordance with federal and state law, the University prohibits unlawful discrimination, including harassment, on the basis of race; color; religion; national origin; gender, including sexual harassment; age; disability; citizenship; and veteran status. Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression is also prohibited pursuant to University policy. The following person has been designated to handle inquiries regarding the nondiscrimination policies, including, but not limited to, serving as the University's Title VI/IX/ADA/ADAAA and 504 Coordinator: Linda Millstone, Associate Vice President for Institutional Equity and Workforce Diversity, NOA 4.302, (512) 471-1849. The mailing address is Office of Institutional Equity, P O Box 7609, Austin TX 78713.

F thru J

Fees.
The total of field trip, laboratory, supplementary, and incidental fees for a class is listed after the class title.
Financial bar.
A code placed on the record of a student to deny access to the registration system because of a delinquent debt to the University. Bars incurred after your registration information sheet is created may be placed on your record prior to your access period(s). In most cases, financial bars may be paid by credit card (see above) or by check or cash at the cashiers in MAI 8. Some financial bars must be resolved in person at the administrative office that imposed the bar. Returned check bars cannot be paid by eCheck or electronic funds transfer.
If you clear a bar by check and your check is returned to the University, your registration will be incomplete. If payment is not received within ten calendar days of the returned check notice, you will not be registered for classes.
Headnote.
A notation in the course schedule that lists the administrative personnel for the area, along with their office addresses, phone numbers, and web sites. In many cases, important information about course prerequisites, descriptions, and registration restrictions is given in the headnote.
In absentia registration.
A candidate for a degree, who has completed the requirements for graduation and needs to register only for the purpose of having a degree conferred, may register in absentia. Undergraduate students must initiate in absentia requests through their academic dean by the deadline. Graduate students may only register in absentia in the fall semester. If payment is received by the deadline, the in absentia registration is complete. If you apply near the deadline, hand carry the request and payment to Registration, MAI 1, to ensure payment by the deadline.
Instructor.
When academic units update the instructor of record, and if space allows, the instructor's last name and first initial are shown to the right of the meeting location.

K thru O

Letters.
Two courses that have the same abbreviation and the same last two digits may not both be counted for credit unless the digits are followed by different letters. For example, English (E) 325 and 325K may both be counted. The letter A following a course number designates the first half of the course; B, the second half. For example, Music 612A is the first half of Music 612; Music 612B, the second half. The letter X following a course number designates the first third of the course; Y, the second third; and Z, the last third. For example, Law 621XY means that the first two-thirds of the six-hour course, Law 621, is being given during one semester. Credit value for course numbers ending in A, B, X, Y, or Z is reduced accordingly. MUS 612B, for example, has a value of three semester hours rather than six.
Meeting place.
The building and room or other meeting location is given after the meeting time. Buildings are identified by three-letter abbreviations, which can be interpreted using the list of buildings printed with the campus map.
Meeting time.
The class meeting time is printed to the right of the unique number in the course schedule. Days of the week are listed by their initial letters:
  • M – Monday
  • T – Tuesday
  • W – Wednesday
  • Th – Thursday
  • F - Friday
The designation MWF, for instance, means that the class meets every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday throughout the semester. Occasionally, a note under the title indicates that the course meets on additional days, or that the course meets only on specific dates or for a part of the semester. Following the abbreviation for the day(s) of the week is the class meeting time. Standard meeting times are as follows:
Standard class meeting times.

fall/spring

  • MWF 8-9am, 9-10am, 10-11am, 11-12noon, 12-1pm, 1-2pm, 2-3pm, 3-4pm, 4-5pm

Some classes have more than one meeting time that students must incorporate into their schedules. These additional times are printed immediately below the first meeting time.
My Tuition Bill site.
Secure site at www.utexas.edu/business/accounting/sar. Paper tuition and fee bills are not mailed; students receive an electronic billing notification. Pay your tuition/fee bill using eCheck, credit card or by electronic funds transfer. UT EID and password are required. Because this process depends on agencies and technical systems other than those at the University, under some circumstances you may not be able to pay by credit card.
New student.
A student who has not previously attended the University, or a student enrolling in the Graduate School for the first time.
Nonfinancial bar.
A code placed on the record of a student to deny access to the registration system because a requirement of an administrative office has not been satisfied. See "Registration and Payment Details," step three, for information on clearing bars. Bars incurred after your Registration Information Sheet is created may be placed on your record prior to your access period(s). A nonfinancial bar must be resolved in person at the administrative office that imposed the bar.
Notelines.
The text that appears below a class title in the detailed view of a class in the online Course Schedule may include a description, prerequisite, enrollment or other restrictions, and cross-listed courses. Prerequisites and descriptions for all courses are given in the undergraduate, graduate, and law school catalogs.
Optional fee changes.
If you want to add or delete an optional fee after your preliminary registration, you may use the Web during any of your access times. To make changes after you have paid your fee bill, go to the sponsoring department.

» to A thru E | F thru J | K thru O | P thru T | U thru Z

P thru T

Prerequisites.
Certain course prerequisites listed in the Course Schedule and/or University catalogs are checked during registration. Students may be allowed to enroll in these courses but are advised that it is still their responsibility to ensure that they meet the prerequisites, since these may be enforced at any time by the department offering the course.
Rank.
Except in the School of Law and the College of Pharmacy, the last two digits of the course number indicate the rank of the course. If 01 through 19, the course is of lower-division rank; if 20 through 79, of upper-division rank; if 80 through 99, of graduate rank.
Readmitted student.
A former student at the University who has applied for readmission and has been accepted for the next semester..
Registration by proxy.
For registration and advising transactions that must be completed in person, a student may allow another person to act on his or her behalf. However, federal law (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974) and University regulations do not permit the release of confidential information without written authorization. To allow someone to act as your proxy, you will need to submit a release to Registration in MAI 1. You must sign the release and your proxy must come to MAI 1 to pick up the release. The release and your proxy's photo ID must be presented for each transaction. Note: Your proxy may not sign a promissory note on your behalf.
Registration information sheet .
Secure Web site at https://utdirect.utexas.edu/registrar/ris.WBX that lists personal information, advising information, access times, and financial and nonfinancial bar information. An EID and password are required.
Religious holy days.
A student who misses classes or other required activities, including examinations, for the observance of a religious holy day should inform the instructor as far in advance of the absence as possible, so that arrangements can be made to complete an assignment within a reasonable time after the absence.
Retroactive withdrawal.
Students are expected to follow the normal withdrawal procedure whenever possible. Requests to withdraw after the semester has ended are considered only if the student had urgent, substantiated, nonacademic reasons and was unable to withdraw by the deadline. Requests for retroactive withdrawal must be submitted to the student's dean before the end of the next long-session semester.
Syllabus.
Faculty members are required to provide a syllabus to students by the first meeting day of the class and it must contain the following items:
  • course name and number
  • faculty member name
  • faculty member office location and office hours
  • TA name, office location and office hours if course has a TA
  • overview of course, including course prerequisites
  • grading policy for course, including whether class attendance is used in determining the grade
  • dates during semester for examinations and assignments that count 20% or more of the total course grade
  • final exam date and time
  • required materials for the course (textbooks, supplies, packets, etc.)
  • course web site
  • and this statement:
    "The University of Texas at Austin provides upon request appropriate academic accommodations for qualified students with disabilities. For more information, contact the Office of the Dean of Students at 471-6529, 471-6441 TTY."

» to A thru E | F thru J | K thru O | P thru T | U thru Z

U thru Z

Unique number.
The five-digit number(s) listed below each title and its associated information identifies each section of the course. This number is required to complete registration transactions.
Use of letters.
Two courses that have the same abbreviation and the same last two digits may not both be counted for credit unless the digits are followed by different letters. for example, Mechanical Engineering (M E) 136N and 236N may not both be counted; however English (E) 325 and 325K may both be counted.
The letter A following a course number designates the first half of the course; B, the second half. For example, Music (M) 612A is the first half of Music 612; Music 612B, the second half. The letter X following a course number designates the first third of the course: Y, the second third; and Z, the last third. Credit value for courses with numbers ending in A, B, X, Y, or Z is reduced accordingly. MUS 612B, for example, has a value of three semester hours rather than six.
UT EID.
An electronic identifier that allows a student to use secure services on the World Wide Web. You may activate your UT EID and choose a password at www.utexas.edu/eid.
Waitlists.
Students use online waitlists to indicate that they wish to be added to a class if a seat becomes available. Academic departments use online waitlists to manage registration in some classes. The online waitlist system adds eligible students to classes on a first-come first-served basis. Students use their UT EIDs to access their waitlists at https://utdirect.utexas.edu/registrar/waitlist/
wl_see_my_waitlists.WBX
.
Web-based class sites.
Password-protected class sites such as Blackboard and CLIPs are associated with many University classes. Syllabi, handouts, assignments, and other resources may be available within these sites. Site activities may include exchanging e-mail, engaging in class discussions and chats, and exchanging files. In addition, electronic class rosters are a component of the sites. Students who do not want their names included in these electronic class rosters must restrict their directory information in the Office of the Registrar, MAI 1 or online.
For information on restricting directory information, see directory information.
What I Owe.
Secure site at www.utexas.edu/business/accounting/sar. Pay most departmental charges and clear financial bars using eCheck, credit card or by electronic funds transfer. UT EID and password are required. Because this process depends on agencies and technical systems other than those at the University, under some circumstances you may not be able to pay by credit card.
Withdrawal.
To resign from the University as a student for the current semester. A student cannot withdraw from the University simply by not going to class or dropping all classes; he or she must follow the withdrawal procedure.

After tuition and fees have been paid, a student must apply to his or her dean for permission to withdraw. Refunds are processed according to the refund schedule on the Withdrawal Petition and Refund Request form. Students who withdraw prior to the first day of classes will receive a 100 percent refund of tuition and required fees, less a $15 matriculation fee. Refunds for students withdrawing after choosing the three-payment plan (not available during summer sessions) are based on the total tuition and fees, not the installment amount paid. Withdrawals for medical reasons must be approved by the associate director for clinical services of University Health Services, who will instruct the registrar to withdraw the student under specified conditions. The refund, if any, will be determined by the effective date on the withdrawal petition form.

Registration rules by dept.

Many of the colleges and departments at the university have their own specialized rules about registering for their courses, which have sometimes been known as headnotes. These are listed here rather than with each course. Contact information for each academic unit is also provided.

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry offers introductory courses designed to meet the educational requirements of distinct groups of students. The goals and prerequisites of each of the introductory tracks are summarized below.

  • Students are encouraged to carefully check that they meet the prerequisites prior to enrolling in a course. Students who do not meet course prerequisites are subject to being dropped from the course by the department. Contact the chemistry undergraduate course office, WEL 2.212 (471-1567; or visit “undergraduates” at the department URL listed above)) with questions about prerequisites or for information about how to furnish proof of meeting a prerequisite.
  • CH 301/302 is intended for students in technical areas. CH 301H/302H is an alternative to CH 301/302 for chemistry and biochemistry majors and other honors program students. These are the only two sequences that provide the prerequisites for advanced chemistry courses. The prerequisite for CH 301 is credit or registration for one of the following: M 408C, 408D, 408K,, 408L, 408M, 427L. the prerequisite for 301H is credit or registration for M 408C or 408K, and consent of the departmental honors adviser. The prerequisite for CH 302 is CH 301 or 301H with a grade of at least C-, and credit or registration for one of the following: M 408C, 408D, 408K, 408L, 408M, 427K.
  • CH 204 and 317 are laboratory courses at the first-year level. CH 204 is the introductory laboratory course to be taken by students in most technical areas, and provides the laboratory prerequisite for advanced chemistry courses. CH 204 requires four laboratory hours and one hour of discussion a week for one semester. CH 317 is required for Bachelor of Science in Chemistry majors and recommended for Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry majors. CH 317 requires one lecture hour and six laboratory hours a week for one semester. CH 204 and 317 may not both be counted.
  • CH 304K followed by CH 305 is a two-semester sequence designed for nonscience majors. CH 304K is not intended as a preparatory course for CH 301. For students who do not need CH 301 or 302, the 304K/305 sequence (or 301/305) may be used to satisfy the six-hour science requirement for some degree plans; check with the dean's office of the college or school in which you are registered to determine whether these courses meet the requirements for your degree plan. CH 304K has no prerequisite. The prerequisite for CH 305 is CH 301 or 304K.

The University of Texas at Austin offers credit by exam for CH 301 and 302. The test in CH 301 is recommended for engineering majors (with the exception of electrical and computer engineering majors) and physics majors who have studied chemistry in high school and who do not have credit for CH 301 or its equivalent. Contact the Center for Teaching and Learning, 2616 Wichita (232-2662), for further information on tests for CH 301, 302, 304K, or 305.

In addition to regularly scheduled classes, hour quizzes and midterm examinations may be held at times to be announced in the following courses: CH 301, 301H, 302, 302H, 204, 304K, 305, 310M, 310N, 210C, 313N, 317, 318M, 318N, 431, 339K, 339L, 353, 153K, 354, 154K, 354L, 455, 456, 369, 369L, 370, 380L, 381M, 382K, 382L, 386J, 387K, 390K, 390L, 391, 392C, 392E, and 392J.

The Department of Computer Science offers a variety of courses for students wishing to major in computer science or simply to obtain some knowledge of computing.

  • C S 302 is an introductory course for students wishing to learn concepts of computer science. It contains a small amount of programming (just to see how it works). C S 320N is an upper-division topics course for non-C S majors that may be repeated for credit when the topics vary. There are no prerequisites for C S 302. Prerequisites for C S 320N vary with the topic and are listed in the Course Schedule; some topics of C S 320N do not have prerequisites. C S 302 and 320N count toward satisfying the science requirement for nonscience majors in most degree plans.
  • C S 303E is an introductory course in programming and computer science concepts for students who have had little or no exposure to computer programming. C S 303E is one of two entry points into the Elements of Computing certification sequence (see below) designed specifically to complement non-C S degrees. There are no prerequisites for this class.
  • C S 305J is an introductory course in programming and computer science concepts. Typically it will be taken by students who are planning to major in computer science, but are not prepared to take the first course in the C S major, C S 307 (see below). The prerequisite is some knowledge of and experience in computer programming; and credit with a grade of at least C- or registration for M 305G.
  • C S 307 is the first course in the computer science major. It assumes familiarity with and facility in programming in a high level programming language. The prerequisite is one of the following: one year of programming in high school, C S 303E (if completed prior to fall 2008) or C S 305J with a grade of at least C-, or consent of instructor; and credit or registration for M 408C.

Elements of Computing sequence. The goal of the Elements of Computing program is to offer students who are not computer science majors the opportunity to gain exposure to computing concepts and skills necessary to be computer literate in today’s society, or to acquire a more substantial computing background. The program is a 12-hour curriculum that can fit into almost any degree program at the University. Students with no programming experience take C S 303E as the first Elements course. After taking C S 303E a student may earn a certificate by taking three or more of the following classes of which two must be upper-division: C S 301K, 302, 313E, 320N, 323E, 324E, 326E, 327E, 329E. Students who have taken one year of programming in high school may take C S 313E instead of C S 303E. After taking C S 313E a student may earn a certificate by taking three or more of the following classes of which two must be upper-division: C S 301K, 320N, 323E, 324E, 326E, 327E, 329E. For more information on the Elements program see www.cs.utexas.edu/academics/non_majors/elements.

Undergraduates may not enroll in any computer science course more than once without written permission of a departmental adviser. No student may take more than three upper-division computer science courses in a semester without the written consent of an undergraduate adviser in computer science.

Almost all lower-division mathematics courses require the following:

1. credit for a specific college mathematics course with a grade of at least C-

2. OR a sufficiently high score on a Calculus AP test

3. OR a sufficiently high score on the ALEKS placement exam

The SAT Reasoning Test, quantitative portion, will NOT satisfy the prerequisite. (The SAT Reasoning Test was also known as the SAT I Test, or just “the SAT”).

The ALEKS placement exam is given online and at the Center for Teaching and Learning. Testing schedules may be obtained from the Center for Teaching and Learning.

Advice on which entry-level mathematics course to take, based on a student's ALEKS score, is available from the Mathematics, Physics, and Astronomy Advising Center, RLM 4.101, or from the Center for Teaching and Learning.

Early in the fall and spring semesters, a computer check will be run to verify that all students enrolled in M 303D, 305G, 408C, 408D, 408K, 408L, 408M, 316, 316K, 316L, and 427K meet the course prerequisite. Students who do not have the prerequisite on record prior to registering or who do not bring proof of meeting the prerequisite to the mathematics department by the eighth class day will be immediately dropped from the course. During the summer session, the prerequisite checks and drops will be done on the second class day.

In all other courses, the instructor is responsible for verifying that the students have the necessary prerequisites.

The Department of Mathematics offers coursework designed to meet the educational requirements of specific groups of students. Each track has its own goals and prerequisites.

The courses and prerequisites are listed below.

  • M 302 is an introduction to mathematical ideas. It fulfills the general education requirement in mathematics. The prerequisite is three units of high school mathematics at the level of Algebra I or higher, and a passing score on the mathematics section of the Texas Higher Education Assessment (THEA) test (or and appropriate assessment test). A student may not earn credit for M 302 after having received credit for any calculus course.
  • M 303D is a course with topics that have been selected from algebra, statistics, and mathematics of investments. It is a course that fulfills the general education requirement in mathematics for students in the social sciences, Business Foundations Program, and other fields. The prerequisite is an appropriate score on the ALEKS placement examination. A student may not earn credit for M 303D after having received credit for M 305G or any calculus course.
  • M 310T (Topic: Foundations of Mathematics) is a course with topics from algebra and basic theory of functions.
  • M 305G is a precalculus course that emphasizes trigonometric and other elementary functions, as well as slopes and limits. Some sections of M 305G are restricted to students outside the College of Natural Sciences. Sections denoted M 305G-CNS are restricted to students in the College of Natural Sciences and have one hour of discussion in addition to three hours of lecture. The prerequisite for M 305G is an appropriate score on the ALEKS placement examination. Credit for M 305G may not be earned after a student has received credit for any calculus course with a grade of C- or better.
  • M 305G will have uniform final and make-up examinations given on dates designated by the Office of the Registrar. Generally, these exams are given at times other than the normally indexed times.
  • Calculus is offered in three equivalent sequences. There is a two-semester sequence, M 408C and 408D, which is recommended only for students who score at least 600 on the Mathematics Level 1 Test, and a three-semester sequence, M 408K/408L/408M. A third option, which satisfies the calculus requirement for some degrees, is the two-semester sequence M 408K and 408L. The two-semester sequence M 408K and 408L or 408N and 408S is also a valid prerequisite for some upper-division mathematics courses, including M 325K, 427K, 340L, and 362K.
  • M 408C and 408D is a two-semester treatment of the techniques used in differential and integral calculus of functions of one or more variables. Each course requires three lecture hours with regular faculty members and two discussion meetings with teaching assistants each week. The prerequisite for M 408C is an appropriate score on the ALEKS placement examination. Only one of the following may be counted: M 403K, 408C, 408K (or 308K). The prerequisite for M 408D is M 408C or 408L with a grade of at least C-. Only one of the following may be counted: M 403L, 408D, 408M (or 308M).
  • In the fall semester, some sections of M 408D are reserved for students with a score of at least 5 on the College Board Calculus AB Examination or a score of 4 or 5 on the Calculus BC Examination. Students with a score of 4 or 5 on the Calculus BC Examination may enroll in a reserved advanced placement section of M 427L in lieu of M 408D. The advanced placement sections of M 408D and 427L are honors sections and are designed for students with above-average mathematical aptitude and a desire to study in greater depth the material of these courses.
  • M 408K/L/M and 408N/S/M are three-semester treatments of the techniques used in differential and integral calculus of functions of one or more variables. Each course requires three lecture hours a week with faculty members and two discussion meetings a week with teaching assistants. For M 408K the prerequisite is an appropriate score on the ALEKS placement examination; and only one of the following may be counted: M 403K, 408C, 408K (or 308K). For M 408N the prerequisite is an appropriate score on the ALEKS placement examination. For M 408L the prerequisite is a grade of at least C- in M 408C or 408K; and only one of the following may be counted: 403L or 408L (or 308L). For M 408S the prerequisite is a grade of at least C- in M 408C, 408K, or 408N. for M 408M the prerequisite is a grade of at least C- in M 408L; and only one of the following may be counted: M 403L, 408D, 408M (or 308M).
  • M 408K/408L will have uniform final and make-up examinations given on dates designated by the Office of the Registrar. Generally, these final examinations are given at times other than the regular examination times.
  • M 316 is an elementary introduction to statistical methods for data analysis; knowledge of calculus is not assumed. Students with a background in calculus should take M 362K and either 358K or 378K instead. The prerequisite for M 316 is an appropriate score on the ALEKS placement examination.
  • M 316K is an analysis from an advanced perspective of the foundations of arithmetic, and is required for prospective elementary teachers. The prerequisite is M 302, 303D, 305G, 505G, or 316 with a grade of at least C.
  • M 316L is an analysis from an advanced perspective of the foundations of geometry, statistics, and probability. The prerequisite is M 316K with a grade of at least C.
  • There are two basic linear algebra classes. M 341 is taught from a theoretical perspective and enrollment is restricted to mathematics majors. M 340L is taught from an applied perspective and enrollment is restricted to non-mathematics majors. Under unusual circumstances, exceptions can be made by the Undergraduate Faculty Advisor in Mathematics.

Conference courses. Unless a conference course lists a specific time and topic, it is an individual instruction course. To register for an individual instruction course, the student must make arrangements for the course with a faculty member and provide written approval to the mathematics departmental office on a form available in RLM 8.100 or 4.101.

Teacher certification. Students seeking certification to teach secondary school mathematics should consult the UTeach Advisor in PAI 4.02 concerning their choice of courses.

Writing component courses. In addition to designated regular courses being offered with a substantial writing component, the department permits a limited number of students to earn writing component credit by adding an individual instruction writing component module to certain organized courses. (Caution: The instructor of such a course is under no obligation to supervise such an individual writing component module.) Students who register for M 325K, 328K, 333L, 139S, 343K, 343L, 343M, 348, 361K, 365C, 365D, 367K, 367L, 368K, 373K, 373L, 474M, or 376C may receive substantial writing component course credit by concurrently registering in the section of M 175 designated as writing component. This concurrent registration requires written consent of instructor; forms are available in RLM 8.100 or RLM 4.101.

Statistics. The following courses are probability and statistics courses offered by the mathematics department: M 316, 339J, 349P, 349R, 358K, 362K, 362M, 374G, 378K, 384C, 384D, 384E, 384G, 385C, 385D, 389J, 389P, and 394C.

Physical science courses 303, 304, and 367M are conducted by the inquiry laboratory method of instruction. In this method, the student makes direct observations of nature and is led by questions to infer the conclusions logically permitted by the observations. The instructor is carefully trained NOT to tell students what to expect or conclude, but, instead, to ask other leading questions or to suggest further tests of a student's tentative conclusion. These courses are especially recommended for future teachers.

Enrollment is limited to twenty-two students per section to allow the instructor to interact adequately with each student.

Grades in inquiry laboratory courses are determined by students' scores on quizzes and the final examination and the instructor's evaluation of student's deductive reasoning ability, class participation, and performance of required class activities.

Students who prefer a more traditional presentation of physical science subject matter (i.e., the normal lecture method) should choose a course such as PHY 309K, 309L, or one of the PHY 341 topics. Students with a background in trigonometry should consider enrolling in PHY 302K and 302L.

Students with credit for any physics course will not be allowed to take P S 303 without the prior approval of the undergraduate adviser. Students with credit for any physics course except PHY 309K will not be allowed to take P S 304 without the prior approval of the undergraduate advisor.

The division’s introductory statistics courses, SSC 303, 304, 305, 306, and 318, satisfy the core mathematics requirement for majors in most degree plans. Only one of these courses or M 316 may be counted for credit.

The division offers a two-semester introductory statistics sequence for graduate students. SSC 380C covers topics such as descriptive statistics, sampling distributions, confidence intervals, and hypothesis testing. SSC 380D covers more advanced statistical methods such as random and mixed effects models, time series analysis, and multivariate analysis of variance. Students with a calculus background should take SSC 382 instead.

Students interested in learning how to use statistical applications for data analysis may enroll in SSC 153K or SSC 183K. These one-credit courses meet twice a week for the first eight weeks of the semester.

The division’s graduate statistics courses are designed to meet the goals and requirements of specific groups of students. Topics offered under SSC 384 are designed for graduate students with a background in calculus and probability. Topics offered under SSC 385 are designed for students in the social sciences who have had an introductory course in statistics, such as SSC 380C. Some topics may have additional prerequisites.

The division also offers a variety of courses for students wishing to obtain some knowledge of scientific computing:

  • SSC 318 is an introductory course covering the principles of statistical and scientific computing. It contains a small amount of programming and counts toward satisfying the mathematics requirement for majors in most degree plans.
  • SSC 329C/329D is a two-semester sequence that integrates linear algebra with its practical applications. Emphasis is placed on physical interpretation, practical numerical algorithms, and proofs of fundamental principles. The prerequisite for SSC 329C is credit or registration for M 408K or M 408C.
  • SSC 222 provides an introduction to programming using both the C and Fortran (95, 2000) languages. This course satisfies the programming knowledge prerequisite for SSC 335.
  • SSC 335 provides a comprehensive introduction to scientific computing techniques and methods applicable to many scientific disciplines. The prerequisite for SSC 335 is M 408M or M 408D and prior programming experience.
  • SSC 374C/394C is an introduction to parallel computing principles, architectures, and technologies. This course prepares students to formulate and develop parallel algorithms to implement applications for parallel computing systems. Students must have completed M 408M or M 408D, M 340L and have prior programming experience using C or Fortran on Unix/Linux systems.
  • SSC 374D/394D is an introduction to distributed and grid computing principles and technologies. Students must have completed M 408M or M 408D, M 340L and have prior programming experience using C or Fortran on Unix/Linux systems.
  • SSC 374E/394E is an introduction to scientific visualization principles, practices, and technologies, including remove and collaborative visualization. Students must have completed M 408M or M 408D, M 340L and have prior programming experience using C or Fortran on Unix/Linux systems.

Graduate Fellows Program. Graduate students seeking a position as a graduate fellow with the division must complete and submit an application by the semester deadline. The application can be found online at ssc.utexas.edu. Graduate fellows positions require concurrent enrollment for at least nine semester hours with a maintained 3.0 graduate grade-point average. The selection process is competitive and each graduate fellow receives and academic appointment within the division.
